In the coming 10 years, at least two thirds of the world’s 30 million Scouts will become effective “Messengers for Peace”, change their world for the better, and send a message of peace to at least 200 million people.
What is Messengers of Peace?
Messengers of Peace is a global initiative designed to inspire millions of young people in more than 220 countries and territories to work toward peace.
Scouts from around the world share what they’ve done and inspire fellow Scouts to undertake similar efforts in their own communities.
Peace in the Messengers of Peace program has three dimensions:
|Personal||Community Based||Collective Result|
Practice this in everyday life, and make this a habit through personal action.
Examples may include individual actions and good turns as follows:-
• Sharing a smile with each person you see.
|Active citizens are those who get involved in their communities and make positive changes in it.
Start our involvement through our communities, the places that we hang out and the people around us; strive to build a bigger impact from there. Work on a project that provides help to a community as a whole and reduces need and conflict. Examples include:-
• Get yourself registered in a community service initiative.
Important to for Scouts to interact with community actors in:
• Identifying needs so that we provide a service in something that is really needed
What we need the Units to do?
• Prior to executing the service project, the unit may approach the South Area MoP program team to discuss whether the project will qualify for MoP. The service project remains wholly the responsibility of the unit
• Submit a simple report on the nature of the project and reflections by the participants (group reflection submitted by leaders for Cub Scouts, individual reflections required for scouts, venture/rover scouts and leaders)
• Submit the service hours clocked on the WOSM website.
• The unit will be issued the MoP patches once the reflections are submitted and the service hours clocked.
• Please discuss the Messengers of Peace program when leaders distribute the patches. It will reinforce the reasons the patches are being received and the impact of the project.
• Leaders should help to explain and promote the program, and can use it to build good will for those Scouts who missed participation this time and use it for an incentive for the next project.
• Scouts to share their MoP stories with friends, family, local media, social media, etc… so that other Scouts in their city, country or the world can be similarly inspired.
